Current Dividend Yield of Stocks in My Stock Portfolio

Most of the companies and REITs in my stock portfolio has announced their 4QFY17 financial results. As such, I am able to tabulate the total dividends they are paying or have paid out in FY17.

I am sure everyone has read about the stock market in a sea of red recently. Is this a buying opportunity?

As a dividend investor, I am keen to know what is the current dividend yield for each of the stock I am holding. This will help me in the decision whether I should be buying more or stop buying.

Company Name Total Dividends

(FY17) (cents)

Current Price

(23 Feb 2018) (S$)

Current Dividend

Yield (%)

ST Engineering 15 3.39 4.42
ParkwayLife Reit 13.35 2.78 4.80
CapitaMall Trust 11.51 1.97 5.84
OUE Hospitality Trust 5.14 0.86 5.98
The Hour Glass 2 0.68 2.94
Kingsmen Creatives 2.5 0.63 3.97
Boustead 2 0.82 2.44
Frasers Commercial Trust 9.82 1.42 6.92
Suntec Reit 10.005 1.93 5.18

Based on the above, we can see that the REITs are generating an above 5% but below 6% dividend yield with the exception of Frasers Commercial Trust. The current level of dividend yield (5% to 6%) is not fantastic but acceptable.

I am more curious about Frasers Commercial Trust. With the news of HP vacating Alexandra Technopark and China Square Central undergoing renovations, I am surprise FCOT is still able to pay out 9.82 cents in total for FY17 and a dividend yield of 6.92%. A buying opportunity? At this moment, I am not sure as I have not read in details the latest financial results and follow up on its recent news. Perhaps this is something I can do next.
